The Thunder have an offense that can fortunately overcome a game full of defensive miscues, and they definitely showed that last night by overcoming five errors in the field. Raise your hand if you thought Ramon Flores would be the most impressive so far of the trio of outfield prospects starting for Trenton this year. Matt Tracy gets the start against the Aeros today at 6:35 pm.

Yankees' pitchers were great today, with both relievers facing the minimum and starter Shane Greene allowing only one run. The offense didn't need them to be quite so good, thanks in part to a six-run third inning. We'll take it anyway. Mikey O'Brien starts against the Manatees today at 7:00 pm.
Low-A Charleston RiverDogs: off
Gabriel Encinas starts against the West Virginia Power today at 7:05 pm.
